My question is.....
I have 2 pc's connected to a Uniden Router w/ DSL. The 1st box is win2k & the 2nd is fedora w/ Samba. I've been wondering how do I setup the fedora box to allow win2k to access it through the router. I understand how to setup samba but I'm stuck with the problem of DHCP. The router has DHCP but, if I allow the router to assign DHCP to both boxes will I be able to access the fedora box w/ samba. If so, does that compromise the security of the network with each box accessing the NET through one nic a piece. Is it best I assign the fedora box w/ two nics and use DHCP on each nic but restrict the router to assigning DHCP to one and statically assign the other nic.
By the way, the router was $19.00 at a Verizon store and It works great you just have to do a Google to find out how to Stealth all the ports. Great buy!
